We now have a timeframe for when Kevin Durant is going to be playing in his first career game as a member of the Phoenix Suns.

The debut is set for sometime next week and the Suns are aiming for that road game against the Charlotte Hornets on Wednesday March 1st according to NBA insider Shams Charania.

During yesterday on NBA countdown, Brian Windhorst reported that the Suns haven’t ruled out tomorrow against the Oklahoma City Thunder, but the all likely hood is that Durant plays either Sunday or next Wednesday as he’s finishing the last touches of his rehab from a sprain right knee.

Durant hasn’t played in an NBA game since January 8th when the Nets beat the Miami Heat. In the 39 games he’s played, he’s averaging 29.7 PPG, 6.7 RPG, and 5.3 APG while shooting 55.9% from the floor and 37.6% from three.

We should learn more today at practice when the Suns talk with the media. But for now Suns fans should get excited as a return is near.
